|Can anyone explain why the USB key I am using is mounted as a read only CDROM drive, rather than a USB key?|
1. Are you mounting it with sudo? Then it's root and user dsl can't write without using sudo again. Check fstab and see if the mount point hotplug sets is for users, root, etc. It should set for users, so you don't have to use sudo to mount.
If that's not it...
2. What kind of key? Can you paste in your fstab? Also type the following command and paste back its output:
fdisk -l device
(where device is something like /dev/sda, wherever this is being set)
